after hearing every dead show on archive i really have to say their are at least another 100 bands just as good the dead may have started the movement but the music still goes on for the other lesser known bands[] i cant imagine you can afford to see ratdog and phil when their are better bands out there for half the price and twice the fun

[some flamebait mod]

I won't go so far as to say "better than the dead" but I am always amazed at the talent that is out there struggling to make a living. I recommend New Monsoon, Railroad Earth, moe., and Mr. Blotto to name a few. After discovering New Monsoon and RRE I saw them at the Last Concert Cafe last year and was blown away.

However, I always have to have my daily dose of the Dead.

Robert Walter and the 20th Congress. Without a doubt a great band to listen to.

Well said the music out there is so vast that one really should look at even music that may "frighten", you like Zappa the Iggy Pop and the like. I love the dead but in the Weir inteiview that mocked a hippy voice I cannot say I did not smirk a bit. One gets sick of a culture that is dead not the music.

I'd make it a staff pick but I'm too scared. Maybe Aaron can. ;)

There are other items like that in the collection I think, just not under that name. It's another example of a local region getting several representations thanks to a LMA volunteer, in this case Aaron Parker. Go Maine DIY hardcore scene, Nate Rainey et al (even if y'all are a tough listen)! :)

And even though it isn't my sound, I'm super stoked to see aaron taping it up in his area and getting all that up here on the LMA, espcially a genre that i'm sure is rarely taped live, let alone shared to the world. Good work aaron!

Dakini(www.dakinijam.com) is real good. I was going to try to get them up on the archive last year, but my dsl had my uploads capped waay low.

Is there anyone out there that could help get them up on the LMA, if I had them mail a few cds ?

There is more than a large handful or great bands on here, that play out regularly. some nationally, other regionally. My list of current favorites that keep me coming back and listening are (with an example show linked, but I suggest jumping around, reading reviews and finding other shows from the artist that look interesting):

Lazlo Hollyfeld - These guys have a great improv jazz/fusion/electronica sound that is really insightful

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=18014

The New Deal - LiveProgressiveBreakbeatHouse - nuff said

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=3552

Percy Hill - Great jamband from New England. Really good songs and lyrics, and groovy jams

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=2704

Holy Moses and the High Rollers - Had to throw this in. HMHR is from Fort Collins, and is a multi-genre Rock and Roll band

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=28579

Steve Kimmock Band - SK is the man. This current lineup with Walters on keys, Mathis (from JFJO) on bass and Rodney Holmes on drums is real tight. **SKB lineup constantly changes, so different shows will yield different styles and sounds**

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=30625

Animal Liberation Orchestra - These guys are taking the nation by storm, and finally too. They have been a secret gem in the scene for a while and its good to finally see them getting the recognition they deserve

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=22434

Thats it for now. there is so much music here its retarded to hear people finding a hard time looking for something to listen to. I usually often settle now for watching the recently added shows list, and just picking shows from there. That way I stay up to date with what is being added to the library. enjoy.....

This is an example of why the archive and the forum rule for music. You can browse around on the board and find suggestions from other people, and in this case, score big. The sound quality on that show is incredible. A sbd multitrack recording, doesn't get better than that, aside from maybe a little aud matrix in.

Thank you for the suggestion. now i have a few more to contribute today:

The Duo - this show features Mike on bass

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=17906

Charlie Hunter Trio - Hot sounding on stage recording courtesy of NicksPicks

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=26022

Club d'Elf - Grabbed the most popular show just to link you to them, but every night is completely different so you have to browse and listen to capture it all

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=14108

Everyone Orchestra - This constantly evolving lineup features the scenes hottest names coming together under the direction of Matt Butler and a conductor (for this show it is Jamie Janover) to lead the band and audience in a group jam

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=27926

Michael Franti and Spearhead - How you feelin'

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=21730

Matisyahu - hasidic reggae, freakin sweet

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=24582


Alright that will do it for now...gotta get back to work and earn it.

well, as far as seeing them live, i just saw jason ricci and new blood play two amazing shows last week. the first cost a $15 cover charge, the second $7. this for shows that lasted from 10pm-2am and 10pm-3am, from a smokin' hot band with the best harp player you will ever see in your life.

*support local music*

So, which ones are local to you, who are in the LMA and whom you support?

A couple good ones in my area (Baltimore MD USA):
http://www.archive.org/audio/etreelisting-browse.php?collection=etree&cat=All%20Mighty%20Senators
http://www.archive.org/audio/etreelisting-browse.php?collection=etree&cat=Cerulean%20City
http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-band-details.php?band=Continuous%20Play (no shows uploaded yet on the last one though)

I haven't even had a chance to check these out though I really should!
http://www.archive.org/audio/etreelisting-browse.php?collection=etree&cat=Mofofunka
http://www.archive.org/audio/etreelisting-browse.php?collection=etree&cat=Basshound
http://www.archive.org/audio/etreelisting-browse.php?collection=etree&cat=Kinder%20of%20Evolution

BTW what's really neat is how certain tapers get the mojo working in their local area to get a whole bunch of bands up here. Tyler, Bobby Lee, Jeff, etc- any cool stories about that kind of mission?

Whoa, one by these guys will be showing up on the pick list shortly- local and my kinda music. What can I say, I'm a sucker for a Hammond B3 organ. :)

I saw this band called the Brakes a couple of weeks ago when they opened for Benevento/Russo Duo in Harrisburg, PA. They write surprising tight songs. I'd highly suggest them.

Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra is a really cool band, check out thier band policy. It's very cool.
The archive is very important, for everything is provides. Betty Boop with Cab calaway y gotta check it out, Bugs bunny. Atomic Bomb video's from the 50's. This is our Alexandra...

Robert Randoph, check him out, check out string cheese...pick a venue that you like in the search, and experiment....
let us know what you hear.... Review things
I Love the music, the dead helped us listen carefully. The Taught me well.
Peace
